It can be frightening.
What type of seizure was it? Here is a good reference on generalized tonic clonic seizures from the mayo clinic that can tell you more about possible causes of it: http://www.Mayoclinic.Org/diseases-conditions/grand-mal-seizure/basics/definition/con-20021356. Please ask your daughter to visit with a neurologist for evaluation of the seizure. Hope that helps!
